Blogmas Day 20: Candy Mountain

Playmobil Advent Calendar: Santa's Workshop


We got a little scooter! I remember when these were so popular when I was a kid.

I really like the pink and gold of this angel. I don't know why, it just makes me happy.

LUSH


Candy Mountain Bubble Bar: This smells like bubblegum, like the Snow Fairy Shower Gel.

This is what the website says about it: "Vanilla candy with a twist. You're in for a sweet holiday treat with Candy Mountain! With the delicious cotton candy scent of our popular Rock Star soap and a sparkly pink luster, this bubbler will turn bath time into a warm, magical experience. Pink and pearly white, we've mixed in snowflake luster to add a touch of magic glimmer to the water. Crumble running water and watch as a mountain of fragrant vanilla bubbles rise. We think this is one sweet treat you won't soon forget!"

Blogmas Day 19: Christmas Eve Bubble Bar

Playmobil Advent Calendar: Santa's Workshop


I like today's gifts. Tiny things! We have a flashlight, backpack, camera, rubber ducky, and an alarm clock.

It is a cart. I think it might be missing some pieces. Remember I got this on E-Bay. 

LUSH


Christmas Eve Bubble Bar: I maybe should have waited for Christmas Eve for this, but I don't care. I think last year I got this, and used it on Christmas Eve. I will wait to use it until then.

The website says this about it: "Moonlight soak. Unwind in mounds of soft, frothy bubbles and the heavenly fragrance of ylang ylang and jasmine absolute. Sink into the warm, blue waters, softened with corn flour, Irish moss powder and baking soda. Little ones love this one too; just crumble one in the tub and let the soothing fragrance calm their excitement and send them off to the land of nod. You'll soon find out why Christmas Eve has become a returning favorite since it first launched a few years ago!"

Blogmas Day 18: Hot Toddy

Playmobil Advent Calendar: Santa's Workshop


It's a wheelbarrow and a bear.

In the same color blue is a sled.

LUSH


Hot Toddy Shower Gel: This smells really spicy and good for the winter time.

The website says: "All things spice and everything nice. Ruby red and cinnamon scented, our sparkling Hot Toddy shower gel will transport your senses to the warmest reaches of your mind. Come in from the cold and lather up with a fresh ginger infusion and cinnamon leaf oil mix that will keep you cozy on the chilliest days. It'll even leave a delectable, cinnamon-y scent on your skin that's not overpowering - unlike a certain cinnamon-y, heart-shaped candy...any guesses?"

Blogmas Day 17: Twilight

Playmobil Advent Calendar: Santa's Workshop


It's another elf.

Playmobil Advent Calendar: Christmas in the Park


We got a lot more birds for the park.

LUSH


Twilight Bath Bomb: I have this in my memory as being my favorite bath bomb. To be honest, I don't remember why.  It looks cool with the stars and moon on it. It smells very herbal/floral. I can pin point what the scent is.

The website says: "Peaceful lavender bathing under the stars. Recreate the magic of a starry night in your bath water with clouds of lavender and tonk a absolute to fight the demons of insomnia and soothe your stressed out body and mind. Our most relaxing Bath Bomb yet, Twilight is our gentle, reassuring hug for the bath to transform you from worn out to warm and fuzzy. It changes color like the sky at dusk, from pinks to purples and darker still. Lay back in the comforting herbal waters to soak your troubles far, far away."

Blogmas Day 16: Father Christmas

Playmobil Advent Calendar: Santa's Workshop


I think these are tools for Santa. Maybe that's Santa's man purse.

Playmobil Advent Calendar: Christmas in the Park


The boy has food to feed the birds and squirrels. He also has a scarf and hat.

LUSH


Father Christmas Bath Bomb: I got this last year, and I liked it. It smells like candy.

This is what the website says: "A colorful surprise inside. If Father Christmas is meant to bring good tidings for the season, this jolly Bath Bomb is the perfect place to start. Pop him into the bath and watch him fizz away and turn the water from a bright red to a vivid green. It's Christmas for the bath! Lie back and savor the moment away from the hustle and bustle of the holidays as Father Christmas' sweet, Snow Fairy scent lifts your spirits and gets you prepared for anything."

Blogmas Day 15: So White Shower Gel

Playmobil Advent Calendar: Santa's Workshop



I had to put the work bench together, and there is a little radio.

Playmobil Advent Calendar: Christmas in the Park




It's a little boy for the park.

LUSH


So White Shower Gel: They made this shower gel because the So White Bath Bomb was so popular. It smells like apples! I love it. Now I have a bunch of shower gels to choose from.

This is what the website says about it, "Crisp and refreshing. So White Bath Bomb has been a LUSH Christmas favorite for years, and this holiday we've invented a gorgeous shower gel that shares its mouthwatering apple perfume! With fresh, gently cleansing apple infusion, soothing rose water and uplifting bergamot oil, a shower with So White will most certainly leave you feeling as fair as can be. We've added a touch of nourishing rice bran oil and tincture of benzoin to soften and calm the skin through the chilly winter months, and its freshly apple perfume will stay with you all day long."

Blogmas Day 14: So White

Playmobil Advent Calendar: Santa's Workshop



Today we got two paddles, toy seal, and two presents. The presents had to be folded together.

Playmobil Advent Calendar: Christmas in the Park


Another squirrel for the park.

LUSH


So White Bath Bomb: I got this last year. It smells like apple cinnamon. I love that smell! 

Here is what the website says: "The fairest apple of them all! A LUSH Christmas favorite, So White is back this year to bring the crisp, fresh aroma of a juicy apple to your tub. Pop it in the bath and watch it fizz, releasing softening baking soda and the uplifting oils of bergamot and neroli. The white exterior slowly gives way to a secret pink center that fizzes and foams, creating a snow-like froth to cover your tub in a glorious blanket of apple-scented snowy bubbles. If you're feeling like a bit of fun, try making snow angels in the fragrant froth!"
